    Thread Controlling the buttons' backlights timeout

    Is there an app or a magisk module that allows me to change the timeout value of the buttons' backlights? I've seen tweaks to either outright disable them, or make them always on when screen is on; but I haven't seen any guide to customize timeout value.

    Thread [QUESTION] Enable round icons system wide?

    Hi, I wanna enable rounded icons (Pixel style) on a system-wide level in 8.1 pure AOSP ROMs - Cardinal AOSP, Carbon ROM, AOSP-CAF. By default, these ROMs have square icons. I know there are guides on xda showing you how to mod the framework-res.apk. That used to work in Nougat, but not in...

    Thread [REQUEST] AOSP Music Player

    Thread [DISCUSSION] Slightly annoying things about Mi A1's performance

    Hi, everyone Just bought the Mi A1 for about a week. Loving it so far. Performance is fairly good. In fact, I'd say this is one of the phones with the best performance in the price range. Unlocking the bootloader, flashing custom ROMs and kernels are all extremely easy - unlike many phones on...

    Thread Square Icons?

    Hi, So I just started flashing custom roms on my Mi A1. To much of my surprise, square is the default icon shape. This is the case with 3 of the roms that I tried: AOSP-CAF, Carbon ROM and Cardinal AOSP. Are square icons the new "thing" now? Since when? Am I that out of touch with android...

    Thread Problem flashing TWRP

    I unlocked the bootloader, and then proceed to flash TWRP using adb. All went well, until I decided to restart into recovery. That's when the phone just get stuck in a "entering recovery", shut down, boot up, and then "entering recovery" loop. I tried using the newest TWRP .img, as well as...

    Google Play Services really slows down my phone. It makes simple games like Subway Surfers become really laggy. So I blocked google play services installation. But without google play services, I can only use old versions of google apps. My question is: Is there a way to trick the system into...

    Thread PERFORMANCE BOOST!! Legacy Apps Collection

    I made this thread to introduce to all of you an alternative method of increasing performance: Using old versions of apps. Old versions of apps are usually lighter, and take up less RAM and CPU. Also, for a lot of apps, especially Google apps, new versions would mean that Google Play Services...

    Thread [Q] [Xperia E] CM9 on xperia e?

    I was thinking: would cm9 be a good idea on this phone? Stock jb roms are slow and laggy, even when they're optimized. Cm10 is buttery smooth, but has the deadly GSM bug. CM11 is... well, we don't know yet. In the worst case scenario, cm11 may never be fully fixed, just like cm10. Finally we...
